Good manure mixing is an important component of organic farming, but it’s not easy when you have to mix as much as 4,000 tonnes of manure to help grow a variety of organic crops on more than a thousand acres. When Dan Konzelmann found that the compost turners he was renting were too small for his needs, he designed and built his own machine. His large-capacity compost turner saves time, energy and expense for the farm. The innovation is creating excellent compost and has generated interest in the local farming community.
